Come Christmas and everybody begins to bubble with joy and excitement. The season is such that no matter who you are or what you do, there is always some joy to be shared with everyone.

Christmas is particularly remembered for the gifts we give and receive. There is a plethora of gift items available on the Internet, so this is also a season during which e-commerce is at its peak. We at Symantec want to send a friendly reminder to you to be cautious while net-o-shopping this Christmas season. Don’t be misled by spammers’ unrealistic offers created to entice you!

To spread this message, here is a Christmas carol specially adapted and written just for you:

---------------------------
